Description

'In the first decade of the twentiety century, it was not a good time to be born black, or woman, in America.'

So begins this stunning portrait of Vivian Baxter Johnson: the first black woman officer in the Merchant Marines, purveyor of a gambling business and rooming house, and mother to one of our most cherished literary treasures.

Anyone who's read the classic, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, knows Maya Angelou was raised by her paternal grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. In Mom & Me & Mom, Angelou details what brought her mother to send her away and unearths the well of emotions Angelou experienced long afterward as a result. While Angelou's six autobiographies tell of her out in the world, influencing and learning from statesmen and cultural icons, Mom & Me & Mom shares the intimate, emotional story about her own family.

Customer Reviews

Love and hope through your words

Witty, funny, poignant and profound, all at the same time. So vividly and beautifully written, it transported me to all these places and times.
It's amazing how your simple yet well crafted words bring hope and love. To me, they do.

Beautiful

Yet another beautiful and wonderfully human account of a life well lived penned but the incomparable Maya Angelou.

I recommend this to everybody. Xxx
